Woronora is located 27 kilometres south of the Sydney CBD. The residential area of Woronora lines on both sides of the Woronora River. The Woronora bridge is the northern limit to residential housing. A footbridge crosses the river at the southernmost limit of housing on the western bank. The housing on the eastern bank continues beyond the end of Prince Edward Park Rd, and some houses can only be reached by a walking track or by boat. The suburb is completely ringed by bushland, with only a single road providing access. Many think that this adds to the charm of the suburb which has curiously escaped the development that its surrounding suburbs have experienced. They feel that this has contributed to the sense of community in Woronora. There is a caravan park on the western shore and picturesque picnic grounds by the river.
Woronora enjoys a delightful, natural setting consisting of family homes, some enjoying waterviews or waterfrontage.
